Today’s Noisemakers: Kelechi Iheanacho, Justin Gaitlin and the tributes pour in for Usain Bolt

Every day on the Nigerian internet, there are people who keep our eyes glued to our phone screens as we read their rants, opinions, perspectives on political and social matters, etc. Sometimes, they are just downright ridiculous. We make it our job to take down the names of these noisemakers.

Here’s our list from today:

1 Justin Gaitlin

Are we looking at Usain Bolt’s replacement? Gaitlin just won the 100M World Championship race. This was supposed to be Bolt’s final individual race and fans came in their numbers to watch him go out unbeaten, but alas, the gold was stolen by another.

Although Gaitlin’s career has been beset by doping allegations, this act had the world in awe.

2. Usain Bolt

Twitter has gone mad over Bolt’s loss, and they are adamant he will forever remain their legend, final world championship loss notwithstanding:

3. Kelechi Iheanacho

While Bolt might be mourning his loss at the end of an illustrious career, another sports star celebrates the beginning of new things. He is one of Nigeria’s football stars flying high our flag  ‘in the abroad’. He has finally signed his contract with Leicester City FC and from all indications, is happy to be there.

4. @ziliyax

Did you catch the brouhaha that went on over Neymar’s transfer to PSG? The football world went bonkers. In case you missed it, we curated it all for you here.

Which brings us to this:

Anything can happen.

5. Victor Asemota

Speaking of football, you all know that’s the way to go now if you want to make serious money, abi? So the Big Chief is enquiring on your behalf:

Don’t say nobody told you. Find your way to MFM or City of David and hone those skills, on your way to making mad dough.

6. Ukpaka

This is an important commentary on our political affairs:

7. Kelechi Okafor

She is an actress and fitness buff and she’s making noise about her new studio:



8. Ava Duvernay

Like Ava said:

The best thing ever.

9. Oluyemi

Nigerians are not about to let this joke go.


10. Mutumba

Bash has made crying girls a relationship goal, it would seem.



Enjoy the new week!
